Subject: [AMBER] Carbon Nanotube Library file (CNT)

Hello All,
     I am currently looking to use AMBER to run simulations on carbon
nanotubes and other non-biological materials. I have previously done this
with GROMACS, thus I understand the sp2 bond information for the CNT's more
then likely must be manually defined. What I have gleened from the mailing
list arcives is that this is not done through modifying the force fields
them selves but creating a *.lib file that defines these values. I was
hoping that some one could point me in the direction of a referance as to
the formating of the *.lib files needed for imput into AMBER. Additionaly
and other tips that one might give to some one new to AMBER.

Thank you for your time and effort!
